Subject: TAB: Switch 625 by Def Leppard

Here's my version of Def Leppard's Switch 625.

                      SWITCH 625 - by Def Leppard

                     (From the album High 'n' Dry)

Tabbed by Ronaldo Cordeiro.

Notation:

~      vibrato
/      slide up
\      slide down
<12>   harmonics
6b(7)  bend up to note between brackets
^      hammer-on / pull-off
/////  tremolo picking

The song begins with two guitars. The first guitar repeats the 4 bar pattern
below 4 times:

Guitar 1. Distorted tone. Let ring.
                                                            (*)
E :----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B :----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
G :----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D :----5-----------|----3-----------|----1-----------|----------------|
A :--5-------------|--3-------------|--1-------------|----------------|
E :3---------------|3---------------|3---------------|----------------|

(*) Guitar 2 enters at this point:

   1st. time                      2nd. time
   (Natural harmonics)
   triplet feel

E :--------------------|------   |-------------------|
B :---------------<12>-|------   |-------------------|
G :--------<5>---------|<12>--   |----<12>-----------|
D :------------<5>-----|------   |----<12>-----------|
A :--------------------|------   |-------------------|
E :--------------------|------   |-------------------|

  3rd. time                       4th. time

e :--------------------|------   |-------------------|
B :------------<12>----|------   |-------------------|
G :--------<5>---------|<12>--   |---------------12\-|
D :----------------<7>-|------   |---------------12\-|
A :--------------------|------   |-------------------|
E :--------------------|------   |-------------------|


Repeat the progression below 4 times varying the last bar as indicated:

  (Don't let notes ring)                                  1st. time
E :-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||----------------|
B :-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||----------------|
G :-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||----------------|
D :----5~-----------|----3~-----------|----1~-----------||----------------|
A :--5--------------|--3--------------|--1--------------||----------------|
E :3--------3-3-3-3-|3--------3-3-3-3-|3--------3-3-3-3-||3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|

   2nd. time             3rd. time               4th. time
   (grad. increase)

E :----------------|     |----------------|      |----------------|
B :----------------|     |----------------|      |----------------|
G :----------------|     |----------------|      |----------------|
D :5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|     |----------------|      |----------------|
A :5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|     |------------3-2-|      |------------3-2-|
E :3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|     |3-3-3-3-3-1-----|      |3-3-3-1-3-1-----|


There are many alternate ways to play the next part. I usually try
to keep the ascending notes on the same string to make slides easier.

6b(7)   Pick and bend half tone
(7)/    Pick again while holding bend and slide up to the next note
15\     Pick again and slide down

In the next part the guitar is doubled but the recording
wasn't clear enough to me, so I tabbed only the main guitar:

  
E :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
B :-----10---11-13-11----|-----10---11-13-11----|-----10---11-13-11----|
G :-------------------12-|-------------------12-|-------------------12-|
D :12--------------------|12--------------------|13--------------------|
A :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
E :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|


E :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
B :-----10---11-13-11----|-----10---11-13-11----|-----10---11-13-11----|
G :-------------------12-|-------------------12-|-------------------12-|
D :13--------------------|10--------------------|10--------------------|
A :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
E :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|


E :----------------------|----------------------|-------10-------------|
B :-----10---11-13-11----|-----10---11-13-11----|------11-----13-11----|
G :-------------------12-|-------------------12-|-----12---12-------12-|
D :13--------------------|13--------------------|12--------------------|
A :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
E :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|


E :-------10-------------|-------10-------------|-------10-------------|
B :------11-----13-11----|------11-----13-11----|------11-----13-11----|
G :-----12---12-------12-|-----12---12-------12-|-----12---12-------12-|
D :12--------------------|13--------------------|13--------------------|
A :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|

E :-------10-------------|-------10-------------|-------10-------------|
B :------11-----13-11----|------11-----13-11----|------11-----13-11----|
G :-----12---12-------12-|-----12---12-------12-|-----12---12-------12-|
D :10--------------------|10--------------------|13--------------------|
A :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|

E :-------10-------------|
B :------11-----13-11----|
G :-----12---12-------12\|
D :13--------------------|
A :----------------------|
E :----------------------|


Now repeat this 3 times (you've seen this before):

E :-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|----------------|
B :-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|----------------|
G :-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|----------------|
D :----5~-----------|----3~-----------|----1~-----------|----------------|
A :--5--------------|--3--------------|--1--------------|------------3-2-|
E :3--------3-3-3-3-|3--------3-3-3-3-|3--------3-3-3-3-|3-3-3-3-3-1-----|


Finally the ending section. I'm not sure about the faster notes but I think
the structure is correct:

E :-----------|--------------------------------|-------------------------|
B :-----------|3-------3-----3-----3-----3-----|3-----3------------------|
G :-----------|5b(7)---5b(7)-5b(7)-5b(7)-5b(7)-|5b(7)-5b(7)r5-3----------|
D :--X\-------|--------------------------------|----------------5~-------|
A :--X\-------|--------------------------------|-------------------------|
E :-----------|--------------------------------|-------------------------|


E :--------------------------------|----------------------------|
B :--------------------------------|----------------------------|
G :2^0^2^0^2^0^2^0^3^0^3^0^3^0^3^0^|5^0^5^0^5^0^5^0^5^0^5^0^5^0-|
D :--------------------------------|----------------------------|
A :--------------------------------|----------------------------|
E :--------------------------------|----------------------------|


E :-----------------------|
B :8-----------8----------|
G :10b(12)-----10b(12)----|
D :-----------------------|
A :-----------------------|
E :-----------------------|

E :-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B :-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G :8---8////////////-8-7-5-7-5-3-5-3---3------------------------------------|
D :----------------------------------5---5-3-5-3----------------------------|
A :--------------------------------------------------3---1---------------1--|
E :----------------------------------------------3-----------3---1---3------|

             slow bend
             1/4 tone
E :-------------------|------------------|-------------------|
B :-------------------|------------------|-------------------|
G :-------------------|------------------|-------------------|
D :-------------------|----5\-------5\---|----8\-------10\---|
A :3b(5)--------------|----5\-------5\---|----8\-------10\---|
E :----------1b-------|3---3\---3---3\---|3---6\---3----8\---|


                       grad. release
                       bend to 1/4
E :--------------------------------------------------------------|
B :--------------------------------------------8--------8------\-|
G :5b(7)//////////////r(6)-(6)-r5-5b-----------10b(12)--10b(12)\-|
D :--------------------------------------------------------------|

there is an easier way to play the second part of the solo. i think its a lot more simple than what you have, its based around the same area so less finger work its.

[----14---14--12------------------------------------]

but of course the beginning note 12 changes to 13 and then 10. its just a more simple way and it sounds just as good!
